    Where were you running your boat? On the water or in the driveway?

    Fab up a "cheap" modular muffler system that you can stab into the header pipes if you're running it in the driveway. Should keep the neighbors from complaining.......if that is the case.

    I'd talk to Tom (jbp), those shot gun mufflers look like the ticket to me. Pull them shut when the db meter is out. Open them up when LEO goes away.

    Canadian law requires all boats to run either below the water exhaust or "muffled" exhaust. There is no DB reading but they do define that a "muffler" must be "an expansion chamber in the exhaust tract designed to adequatly reduce the exhaust noise". Thats paraphrasing but its worded very close to that. I do not believe one can do ANYthing to a set of OT's, dry or otherwise, in Canada to make them legal, except of course run them the required distance from shore when open exhaust is legal, which is like 5 miles or something and thats obviously catered to the offshore crowd.

    My old tunnel had thru transom Bassetts water injected which dumped below the waterline at idle and I still got a ticket once. I suppose if I was on a large body of water I could try to claim I'd idle out to the 5 mile limit but the min I am on plane within I "could" get a ticket. Putting a legal expansion chamber in a set of OT's is probably not very feasable so for all intents and purposes I consider OT's "illegal" in Canada.

    I ran some supertraps for a while, they seemed to quiet down my 396ci pretty good. I finally took them off because they would make the dirty water fall on the transome of the boat. They made no noticeable decrease in power.

    All I can say is Just a bunch of charlie rent a dick's being aholes! Fock em. If you have water going through them there should be no problemo amigo. They probably have nothing better to do. I dont know but sounds bogus to me. Keep making noise.
